SecureCloud+ provide gift parcels to SSAFA Reading and RAB

Reading Association for the Blind (RAB) and SSAFA Reading has partnered with local IT company SecureCloud+ to deliver care packages to the charity’s members to help them transition through the pandemic

The Reading based charities have given their members a special surprise as they have successfully delivered over 300 gift parcels to throughout the month of September. The gift parcels were generously provided by local IT company SecureCloud+, to raise the spirits of the RAB members and SSAFA beneficiaries during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

SecureCloud+ have included in the care packages several useful items during the pandemic such as face masks, hand sanitisers as well as stress balls and many office-related stationaries. In these unprecedented times, these items will come as a welcome boost to ensure that the members know that the charities are there to help.

Peter Williamson- CEO of SecureCloud+ said, ‘We realise that we must support the community in any way we can as most staff members are from Reading and have grown up in various Reading communities. Helping the community is one of our core ethos as an organisation to ensure that we are giving back. We are in awe of work these charities do in the community and we hope that the care packages give their members a boost as we work together through the pandemic.’

Adele Barnett-Ward, CEO, Reading Association For The Blind, commented

“We are so grateful for SecureCloud+’ support and generosity during this challenging time. Not only have they committed to replacing our outdated IT, but they also came up with the idea of care packages for our service users. Whilst lockdown is lifting for most, the challenges of maintaining social distance when you have a visual impairment mean that many of our service users are still unable to get out and about. The Secure Cloud+ care packages are a timely boost to morale and a reminder that people are thinking of them.”



Pam Reynolds BEM, Volunteer for SSAFA Reading said:

‘We would like to send our thanks to SecureCloud+ for their kind gesture to help our members. The pandemic has been a very difficult period for everyone in the community. These wonderful gifts distributed by SecureCloud+ will be a welcome boost to the Gurkha Community.’

This is merely the start of their collaboration as the IT company look forward to working with the RAB in upgrading the IT software for their staff later this month. SecureCloud+ will be providing IT software upgrades and refurbished laptops to the charity.
